Body Swapping

I have a reg. cab 1999 Ford Ranger. I am looking to swap bodies with one as close as possible for less welding. I cant find a website that lists measurments and I am hoping to get an idea before I break out the measuring tape...

does anyone know any 1940s 50s 60s truck bodies that fit on a 99 ford ranger frame?

Thanks in advance,
Adam

we need more info! is a car body truck body what??? second thing is the ranger frames are real small and narrow, not saying it cant be done but you are looking into a lot of welding and cutting. the best thing to do if you want a older model is to find a complete one a start from the frame up. not trying to mod a new frame. third is all the 96 and newer is computer control on everything fuel brakes and some supension. so you are looking in to a lot of possible factors here which would be much easier to redo a old one.

now i have a few frames fromt he 70s 2 wheel and 4 wheel frames motors trannies etc. this is what i mostly work with. on restores.
